Bright black garnet color. Aromas of beets, raspberry vinaigrette, marinated artichoke hearts, slate, and toasted sesame with a satiny, medium-to-full body and a tingling, interesting, medium-length chocolate with candied lemon peel, charred oak, fruit punch, and leather finish with medium tannins and moderate oak flavor. A satisfyingly savory and bright Washington red.

'Other Red' is a catch-all category for both uncommon grape varietals and uncommon combinations of varietals. There are little pockets of other red varietals grown throughout the US. In California, Italian varietals such as Barbera, Gignolino, Primitivo, and Nebbiolo and esoteric Rhone varietals like Cinsault and Carignano can be found. Tempranillo, best known as the principal red variety of Spain’s Rioja, can also be found in small plantings in the Southwest where hot grown conditions favor the grape. Many producers throughout the US produce blends of Bordeaux with non-Bordeaux varietals such as Zinfandel, Petit Sirah, Syrah and even hybrids like Chambourcin that fall under our Other US Red category.
